Failing Grades and Repeating Courses

Failing Grades

VA pays for courses that are required and in pursuit* of degree programs. Any course in which an “F” grade is received will require that the student attend to the last day of classes. MVP will confirm last date of attendance from our Banner System.

*The term “pursuit” means to work, while enrolled, toward the objective of a program of education. VA calculates rate of pursuit by dividing the credit hours being pursued by the number of credit considered to be full-time by the school. The resulting percentage is the student’s rate of pursuit).

Repeating Courses

Classes that are successfully completed may not be certified again for VA purposes, if they are repeated. However, if a student fails a class, or if a program requires a higher grade than the one achieved in a particular class for successful completion, that class may be repeated and certified to VA again.
